Concentrated in the southern Greek part of the island, the majority of wine production in Cyrpus is at elevation (approximately 2,000 to 5,000 ft) where precipitation is most abundant.
Medieval Cyprus wine was commercially the most important in the Middle East, but because of its position in the eastern Mediterranean, Cyprus has been subject to domination by various foreign powers. Since it joined the European Union in 2004, the Cyprus wine industry has experienced a significant revolution. Phylloxera has never invaded the island; grape varieties are a combination of indigenous and international.
